“Do you believe? Do you dream? ‘Little Victories’ is a stirring masterpiece of an EP, replete with passion, poise and fingerpicked pathos..” – Andrew Hill (Time Out, London)
CuzN is a singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist originally from South England but now based in Sydney, Australia. He has released two EPs: London Pride EP (2014), Little Victories (2015)
Inspired by years of crazy nights, cavorting and crashing on couches, CuzN has learned a thing (or two) about life. From dingy London dungeons to high-class American apartments, via sumptuous Sydney sunshine, his handsomely-expressed acoustic sermons on love and life have acquired devastating resonance.
Ordinary People’ was written by Richard Soward (CuzN) in February 2015 and recording at Love HZ Studio with producer Michael Carpenter (www.mcarp.com) July 2015.
“I wrote this song in about 20 minutes! It’s a piece of self-deprecating satire originally intended to just be a bit of fun, which by the end of the song turns into an epic battle cry! My writing was becoming a bit serious so this was a release from all that.”
On his travels CuzN has racked up an impressive number of gigs and support slots including: The Radiators, Owen Campbell, Andy Rourke (The Smiths),Primal Scream, The Horrors and many more.
Accompanying the song is the perfect music video – “the music video was all shot in one day in Sydney, with the intention of getting as many people from all walks of life involved holding up lyrics to the song. We wanted the video to be as fun to watch as it was to make, and to have it incorporate a ‘making of’ feel throughout. We had an awesome time meeting strangers in Sydney that day.”
With an infectious, rhythmic sensibility to rival the very best (do not expect a sterile ‘strummer’), and humour to spare, CuzN is going to make your hips shake, your heart flutter and may even make you re-evaluate your life choices!
